Ratched represents the type of female McMurphy calls "ball cutters". She emasculates them and then controls them, "We are victims of a matriarchy here," Harding says that about the nurse complaining that she pecks at their eyes. McMurphy replies, "No buddy, not that. She ain't pecking at your eyes. That's not what she's peckin' at."
